With the explosion in digital tools available free on the web or even at a low cost from suppliers, it seems that every profession on the planet now has the option of assistance and back-up from the digital world. Tradies have always been a tight knit community with a preference for good manual graft over keyboard tapping or fiddly apps – but now the enthusiasm which tradies have adopted to the technology shows they recognise the practical assistance these tools give to their daily function. Whatever the need, be it product knowledge, access to latest regulations… there will likely be an app to cover it.
To address the daily need for our industry, manufacturers and suppliers have introduced many category-specific apps that allow sparkies to access the product or knowledge they need on-site, using tablets or mobile phones.
Marketplace has identified the leading electrical and tradie apps that are available to you today.
